Trilinc appoints EFA as manager

EFA has deployed $107m in term loan transactions in TriLinc’s target geographies of Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines.

Alternative asset manager EFA Group has been appointed as one of the investment managers for the TriLinc Global Impact Fund.

The TriLinc Global Impact fund is an impact investing fund that provides growth-stage loans and trade finance to established small- and medium-sized enterprises in developing economies where access to affordable capital is significantly limited.

“Partnering with EFA Group represents an exciting opportunity for TriLinc to expand its term loan capabilities in Southeast Asia and take advantage of the impact opportunities we have observed in the region,” said Gloria Nelund, TriLinc’s chief executive officer.

“EFA’s deep market knowledge, in-country networks, and longstanding borrower relationships provides a platform for TriLinc to continue delivering risk-adjusted returns to our investor base while supplying a critical source of capital to the region’s growing SME segment,” he added.

EFA Group, under its affiliate EFA RET Management, will act as a sub-advisor on TriLinc’s term loan investment opportunities in Southeast Asia.

EFA Group is an independent asset manager providing alternative investment solutions in credit strategies, with a focus on real economy businesses.

It has deployed over $5.4 billion in trade finance and term loan transactions globally, including over $107 million in term loan transactions in TriLinc’s target geographies of Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines.

TriLinc Global is a private investment management company dedicated to launching and managing innovative products intended to exponentially increase participation in impact investing.
